Tri Sigma is a valued partner with March of Dimes in the fight for the health of all moms and babies in the communities they serve.
Tri Sigma

The March of Dimes and Tri Sigma have partnered together to help give all babies a fighting chance. This collaborative effort will give members of Tri Sigma the opportunity to engage in their local communities together for a common cause.

The women of Tri Sigma will work together to help build mission awareness to the communities they serve. There are several activities that Tri Sigma will engage in with our partnership. They will make baby blankets to be delivered to the NICU units across the country, they volunteer at Military Baby Showers and during their recruitment weeks on local college campuses they will be doing mission activities with potential members. Tri Sigma raises critical funds for our  Prematurity Research Centers across the country.

Tri Sigma chapters around the country participate in activities to show their philanthropic culture to the communities they serve.

Tri Sigma undertakes several activities related to this initiative, including:

  • Make baby blankets to be delivered to neonatal intensive care units (NICU) across the country
  • Provide boxes of baby items to military baby showers and during their recruitment weeks on local college campuses
  • Complete mission activities with potential members
  • Work year-round on fundraising for March of Dimes, including raising funds for the Prematurity Research Centers through local events
  • Form March for Babies walking teams within their local communities
     

Tri Sigma chapters from around the country participate in these activities to demonstrate their philanthropic culture to the communities they serve. March of Dimes staff can—and are encouraged to—reach out to local chapters to engage them in fundraising activities. Sorority chapter members are also encouraged to get involved with local markets to help with volunteer needs as well as serve in leadership roles where best-suited.


Tri Sigma was founded by a group of eight women who wanted to establish a sisterhood based on the bond of friendship. The mission among its members is to establish a perpetual bond of friendship, develop within them a strong womanly character and impress upon them high standards of conduct.


Tri Sigma and March of Dimes share a common history in The Robbie Page Memorial Fund. It was the sorority’s first national philanthropic effort in 1954, after the passing of five-year-old Robbie Page (son of then Tri Sigma National President Mary Hastings) from bulbar polio. 


At its 2016 convention, Tri Sigma welcomed March of Dimes as its only philanthropic partner—one that allows the sorority to continue to honor Robbie’s wish of serving children.
